    I have gotten onto Supported Progression for Durham University. The issue is, I wasn't granted my first choice subject, which was History. I have been placed on English Literature instead.
    Should I cancel my place on Supported Progress and go for History at another university?

    What point of the process are you at? Are you in Yr 12 or have you applied through UCAS yet?

    Have you appealed/asked them to reconsider your subject?

    If you're in Yr 12 then it's worth looking around at other schemes for applicants that would give you specific help with History (like the Newcastle PARTNERS programme or similar).

    There's nothing to stop you from taking part in multiple schemes with many universities (except for any timetabling clashes).
